  • He jumped from forty thousand feet without a parachute . . . . . . (3 Times)
    But he ain’t gonna jump no more.
    Gory gory what a hellava way to die . . . . . . (3 Times)
    And he ain’t gonna jump no more.
    He landed on the tarmac like a blob of strawberry jam . . . . . .
    They scraped him from the tarmac with a bread and butter knife . . . . . .
    They put him in an envelope and sent him home to Mum . . . . . .
    She put him in a matchbox up upon the mantle piece . . . . . .
    The moral of this story is don’t jump without a ‘chute . . . . . . (3 Times)
    Or you will jump no mooooooore.
